    Jakarta Minimart Beer Ban – Hopes Dashed for Real Reform? 

    Ludicrous reading how Ontario inches forward, somewhat hesitantly, on the issue of selling drinks to those who wish to drink…Beer is coming to grocery stories…so what’s the catch? …with ridiculous conditions that continue to show weird distrust of Ontarians.


    wynne Comrade Wynne, Premier of Ontario


    However, with a lesbian cultural marxist running the province, at least we can’t blame sectarian prejudice!


    But how sad to read the bad news here where I live, that our hopes for a rollback of the ‘creeping shariah’ gloom inflicted on Indonesia by the current government……have been dashed, after a senior bureaucrat reaffirmed that the authorities don’t trust their own citizens enough to let them buy a cold beer on a hot day – at least not at any place convenient to where they live and/or work.  




    It’s quite pitiful, really, how foreign tourists (but not, alas, foreign residents!) are deemed more worthy of such a ‘privilege’ than Indonesians.

    But that is the clear message from Ms. Srie Agustina, Director of Domestic Trading. 

    “The director general regulation will only allow for the sale of liquor in tourist areas. It could be outside tourist areas, but such a distribution arrangement should have license permits from the regent or the major. But the sale will not be at minimarkets.  


    On the other hand, it could be argued that Jakarta, as a fascinating capital city, could be declared a ‘tourist area’ in its entirety!

    Oh well, batten down the hatches.

    I’m off on holiday soon, to a country where people are free to get hold of a beer when they’re thirsty.

    Congratulations, Your Majesty! 



    We have several pictures of HM on file, but I like this one best. 

    I was born in the reign of the last King Emperor, but the only monarch I can recall from my childhood days was Queen Elizabeth,  for whom we all stood to attention when her anthem was played at the end of every movie show in the Avon or the Vogue.



    Yeah, Stratford, Ontario, had two theatres in those halcyon days!

    And she’s still there at Buck House, or rather today in Scotland, still working hard!

    Amazing lady.

    But I wonder how she feels, deep down, about what’s been done to her realms, over the past half century while she has maintained silence as a constitutional monarch has to, by the politicians.

    I don’t suppose we’ll ever know.

    What Hijab Debate? Canada’s Tameera, Nadia and Alysha Mohamed Lead Topless March! 

    Heck, and here’s me idling about in the Jakarta sunshine yesterday, when, had I but known, a fast flight Friday might have borne me to Ontario in time for this intriguing event.

    kasier bill His Imperial Majesty Kaiser Wilhelm II

    I doubt the Kitchener Waterloo area has seen such excitement since my cousin, with many other loyalists, chucked the Kaiser’s bust into the river in 1914!

    But the bust is still the issue, or rather lots of them, of arguable quality, judging from the photo in the report. 



    Bare With Us" demonstrators gather at the Waterloo Town Square in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, 1 August, 2015.
    ‘Hundreds of topless women joined the march,’ says the BBC, but who are the lucky men in the parade?


    Hundreds of Canadian woman joined a topless protest march after three sisters were allegedly stopped by police for cycling without shirts. Saturday’s “Bare with us” march took place in Waterloo, Ontario.

    I’ll bet my old buddy who worked in Jakarta for years before returning to the Dominion will have found an excuse to visit rels in the vicinity.

    But the childish issue about which these show-off gals are demonstrating is much less interesting than the names of the three chief protagonists of their cause. 

    “They are boobs not bombs, chill out” and “Nudity isn’t sexual.”

    Ayisha – an admirable antidote to Islamophobia!


    The three sisters, Tameera, Nadia and Alysha Mohamed, say that they took their shirts off because it was a hot summer day.

    Now, far be it from me to jump to conclusions. That is to risk pinko squeals of ‘Islamophobia,’ after all, the penultimate sin in modern Canada (the ultimate being the equally absurd ‘homophobia!’)

    • islamophobia-21
    • But do their names indicate these up-front agitators are Muslim?

    If so, I applaud them, not because I think it is especially commendable to stride about with waggling mammaries, but because it will upset the uptight imams who get into a lather at even a glimpse of glossy locks or even – shock/horror – thigh!

    And if bras are to be cast aside, the shariah head-shrouds known in the West as hijabs will not be far behind, en route to the trash-can of Canadian history…



    Apparently free-swinging public bonzers have been legal since 1991, when a  court ruled there was “nothing degrading or dehumanising” about such a display.

    • burka family
    • If being unclad, or by logical deduction, clad, in a manner that’s degrading or dehumanising” is the litmus test for permissiblity, then how come burkas have not long since been outlawed?

    Just asking!

      Got to agree with you, Ross, the burqa is dehumanising and degrading and should be banned everywhere.

      It’s a serious point, though. We need girls like these sisters to assert their womanhood.

      You may think, or want us to think, that you are on the side of women’s rights, but not for one minute are you, if you use chauvinist language that rubbishes women’s bodies.
      A word like ‘bonzers’ has no place in any serious discussion and as far as I’m concerned, it’s very clear you are mocking the bare-breasted women in Waterloo. You have not advanced much further than that 1914 cousin you talk about.
      Getting rid of hijabs and burqas is a worthy cause and I support it. but not if that brings me into association with sexist dinosaurs.

        Good evenng, Janet.
        Your use of the word ‘dinosaurs’ to describe me and others like me is surely no better than my use of the word ‘bonzers.’ There are ruder words but I eschew coarseness. Nor am I offended by the dinosaur appelation. All good fun.
        Frankly, I do find it funny, in both senses of the word, (haha and peculiar) that a bunch of females would parade their ‘bonzers’ for all the world to see.
        If I am to be likened to anyone, why not my bygone kin in 1914, who were all, so far as I know, good guys, loyal subjects of the King-Emperor.
        I do wonder what they’d say to a gaggle of bonzers waggling around Waterloo?

      Janet, bonzer doesn’t just mean breast, it’s a term of praise for an outstanding breast,
      So Ross was being complimentary to whichever ones he was talking about. .

    Toronto Cops’ Lives Matter – Slap Down These Arrogant Upstarts! 


    I don’t actually have a lot of time for the gutless PC bums who run Toronto Police. 



    Toronto’s Keystone KGB – Infested With Undesirables? 


    But I don’t want to see rank-and-file officers on duty bludgeoned to death by demented savages, which is more than can be said for pro-criminal elements in Ontario’s largest city.

    It’s a fairly basic matter of principle.


    civilised man v savage


    Amazingly, the sap who wrote the report in Yahoo News calls this un-elected clique a ‘community organization.’


    Its own description gives the game away – they say they are “working in solidarity with communities seeking justice from state-sanctioned violence,” and hence we can identify the jerks at once, by their jargon, as undesirables shrilling cultural marxist cliches.

    The unlamented South Sudanese Loku (unlamented except by said trouble-makers, and, presumably, any close kin ) was shot by police on July 5 at an apartment complex near Rogers Road and Caledonia Road when he refused to comply with demands to drop a hammer, then reportedly approached the officers.

    Bloody smart move, cops, and a pity they don’t shoot more violent anti-socials! There’d be a lot less crime, not just because the number of crims would be reduced by the shootings but because all but the most dim-witted crims would quickly tumble to the fact that open season on enemies of society had finally opened.

    “Andrew Loku’s murder by the police is a traumatic experience for black people in Toronto,” said Black Lives Matter representative Sandy Hudson in a news release. “We are enraged.”

    I’m sure most normal folk in Toronto would respond to this pinko klutz’s rage with the slogan depicted below.



    And I reckon those sensible words in our illustration would resonate with decent black citizens as much as white or any other colour.

    This arrogant crack-pot Hudson has no mandate to speak for blacks, or anyone except her own ratbag comrades!

    And it gets worse!  

    Arrogance barely suffices as a word to describe the ‘deadline ‘ today, by which time the entirety of Toronto must bow down and kow-tow to these overweening whiners.

    The group is calling for charges to be laid against the officers involved in the shooting.



    It also wants the officers to be identified, and video footage of the incident to be made public.

    Sounds very much like somebody wants to paint a target on these policemen’s backs!


    The demands, which the oganization wants fulfilled by Wednesday afternoon, also include monetary compensation for Loku’s family and public apologies from the mayor and police chief. https://ca.news.yahoo.com/black-lives-matter-demands-toronto-202545414.html

      Well said and well-written, Ross.
      We had black people living in our street in Toronto when I was little, never a problem betwen them and whites, everybody just lived and worked.

      Ever since Trudeau, Canada has let people like this Luko in and hardly ever kicks them out.
      What does it take before enough is enough.

    Bravo, Canada! Christian, Jewish, Muslim Crowd Condemns Khomeini’s Evil! 


    That mangy old monster above was an evil man, and the regime he installed in Iran remains just as evil as ever.

    Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic in Iran, is recognized as having authorized the execution of thousands of political prisoners, the systematic torture, imprisonment and murder of political dissidents and the hostage-taking of 52 American diplomats.  http://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/5655347-outrage-grows-against-islamic-celebration-of-komeini-in-richmond-hill/

    So it’s great to see crowds of Canadians, of all creeds, out there last Sunday, protesting against rabid ratbags who dare compare the brutal old beast to Ghandi and MLK.


    “Today’s heinous gathering is a celebration of execution, it’s a celebration of rape, it’s a celebration of unjust imprisonment, it’s a celebration of torture!”

    A timely reminder of what the Islamic Republic is built on, from an Iranian-Canadian, lawyer Kaveh Shahrooz.


     Zafar ‘Enemy Within’ Bangash


    And no wonder people were angry, after a swine named Zafar Bangash, President of that Islamic Society, had proclaimed that the event would commemorate Khomeini’s good work, in the same way Martin Luther King and Ghandi are celebrated, for “trying to remove injustice.”



    One of the Ontario legislators present, Reza Moridi, MPP for Richmond Hill, knocked that nonsense down promptly. He denounced it as “an insult to the wisdom of and intelligence of billions of people on this planet and in particular to hundreds of thousands of Iranian-Canadians.” 

    There were other MPPs too and a leading Jewish spokesman, and of course many people of Iranian origin, who, please note, will mostly have been Muslims.

    That’s important to remember when we demand the deportation of scum like Bangash.

    out with them

    It’s not because of how they worship God that Islamists should be expelled from civilised countries, but because of their allegiance to an ideology which is incompatible with being a good, true Canadian.

    Or Brit, or American, or Australian, or…any civilised country.

    Fifties Ontario Out Of Reach, What To Do On Empire Day? 

    I was so tired when I got home last night, quite out of character.

    The key cause, methinks, was that Busway journey from Juanda Station to Grogol, packed into the bus, all seats taken, of course..

    macet1 I DO love Jakarta, really!


    • … and ENDLESS delays, for reasons not entirely due to the traffic, which, at rush hour, was bad and probably worse than usual due to many people heading out of town for the holiday today, which they’ll extend to include tomorrow and the weekend.

    A lot of them head for Puncak, incomprehensibly to me, because there is nothing to see or do there, except hills and tea plantations, which, once seen, are best consigned to the photo album.

    BTW, it’s now bucketing rain outside, so good luck to them!


    • wine-women-and-song
    • =============
    • And of course my travel-stress was exacerbated a thousand-fold by the fact that a free-flow beer event was my destination. A dashed fine bar was marking its anniversary and since I use it from time to time, ’twas only fair I be part of that rejoicing.

    By the time I reached it, nearly one of the three hours free-flow had elapsed, and the God’s Honest Truth was that I was so exhausted, I could only manage five pints before the call of home began to sound within my weary head.

    A tempora, a mores.


     alittle bit before even my time!


    While en route to West Jakarta, there was plenty of time to contemplate joyful celebrations from boyhood on, and for some reason – probably because it’s coming up soon – Empire Day in Ontario popped into my head, bonfires and red, white and blue bunting all around, our glorious Red Ensign flag fluttering uniquitously, as indeed it did all year round.


     my last such day was in 1956, Dief the Chief was there…


    All my friends, neighbours and kinfolk, old and young alike, delighting in our shared heritage of loyalty.

    I thought- how shall I spend Empire Day this year?

    So today I’ve been scanning for accessible events. .


    Kodim 0507 Bekasi 10 K dan 5 K, 24 Mei 2015


    If you too are wondering what to do to celebrate Empire Day in style this year,  there seem to be few events on Jakarta on 24th May – but then I spotted this, in West Java, just across the city limits – an energetic way to work up a thirst!

    Alas, the conditions of entry forbid non-citizens from participation.

    I also suspect there are few if any people in Bekasi who have even heard of Empire Day, nor would they have any interest whatsoever in celebrating it if they had!

    But I’m sure we can watch, and observing people run ten kliks in this heavenly hot climate engenders thirst almost as much as running the darned thing!

    PS, if readers do know of alternative options for a day or night out, please advise!

      Oh yes, that was such a big day for everyone, and I miss it so much.
      Canada was a happier country then, and with much more freedom than today, when we can’t publicly say what we think’s right and wrong anymore.
      I fully expect in a few years we’ll have a Ramadan holiday declared, especially if Justin Trudeau wins the next election.

    Mississauga School Menace – Devious Deviant Delights in Deceit! 

    Here’s a rude awakening for any parent in Mississauga, Ontario, who imagines that teachers respect their right to know what poisonous propaganda is fed into young minds.

    • indoctrination
    • ———————————-
    • A shocking report from a conference held by queers – the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity — has exposed one sly lesbian’s underhand tactics. 


    Her name’s Alicia Gunn – would you want your child brain-washed by the likes of her?


    When asked by one of the workshop attendees if she first asks parents’ permission before bringing homosexual issues up in class, Gunn responded that she does not, but she makes sure to teach her students about numerous social justice issues so that no parent can accuse her of focusing on homosexuality, which she said she likes to “hide” in her lessons.



    Canadian schools, if they’re all like hers, have become cess-pools. Alarmed by the little ones’ perfectly normal distaste for homosexuality, she embarked on a sedulous scheme of moral subversion.

    Listen to her triumphalist rant. 

    Gunn mocked the parents for failing to realize just how extensive are pro-LGBTQ issues in the classroom and curriculum.

    “And it’s not one day a year,” she said. “If you don’t want to send your kid to school on the Day of Pink, that’s OK….




    ….But they’re going to get it all the days before. They would have got it in September, and they’re going to get it after. So, one day? We’re not about one day.”

    This evil aberrant has no shame; she even boasts of her duplicity.

    I find if you teach all the ‘isms,’ it kind of backs you,” she said. “If I teach all the isms, and sometimes I can hide it a little bit in the math, and what I mean is I can say, ‘I’m just teaching your kid about division. I’m so sorry that you, you know, feel that way,” she said, causing the room of educators to break into laughter.  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/lesbian-i-use-math-class-to-teach-young-kids-about-homosexuality-so-i-can-h?utm_

    Blatant contempt for decent moms and dads! Read every word of that LSN link – and it also gives you access to an audio recording of some of Gunn’s grotesque diatribe.

    NB – LSN were asked to stop filming, so the pervert lobby clearly still has its worries that enough parents will be alerted to what’s being done to their kids.


    • come on Canada
    • O Canada. Only you can save yourself.
    • Jeanne 12:11 pm on April 29, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      That woman is a monster who should never be allowed in a class-room ever again.
      She is bold enough to boast in public about her abuse of her job.

      But there must be thousands more just as wicked and working to corrupt the minds of kiddies all over Canada.
      We need the names of every ‘teacher’ at that conference, and we need to get them out of our schools.

      This is very bad for children.

    Prohibition Indonesia – Bali Exempt…Sort Of! 

    Had to get out and about last night to survey the expat reaction to the embryonic ‘creeping shariah’ diktat we’ve already covered here.



    Also to preempt the decree, by sinking as much vin rouge as possible – hence my delayed home-coming (fell asleep on the busway and ended up in Pluit) and my very late emergence today. 

    Not hard to gauge opinion – it was the first thing just about EVERYBODY at the party spoke about. My fellow-attendees included Brits, Canadians, Germans, French and Australians – there was a mood of restrained alarm, many a finger crossed that sanity might yet prevail.

    Some drew consolation from the fact that even government ministers must soon grasp that any such nationwide ban on booze would devastate Bali’s tourist trade.


    • australia_bondi_beach_1010_girls_01 That’s Bondi beach, not Bali’s – but a nice photo, yeah?
    • —————–
    • And sure enough, a small grain of sense has percolated through. However, the ‘exemption’ of the Isle of the Gods is not as sensible as the Jakarta Post headline might lead us to hope.

    Instead of leaving well enough alone, the ‘exemption’ ensures that minimarkets, food stalls, street vendors and beachside vendors will no longer be allowed to sell beer or other beverages with an alcohol content of between 1 and 5 percent. Thirsty tourists will thus no longer be able to walk out of their hotels or flop-houses and buy a beer two yards  from the door. That’s how densely populated Kuta and Legian, at least, are, in terms of mini-marts.

    Instead, a cumbersome network of local government meddling is to be imposed. In Kuta, for example, six customary villages would establish village-owned enterprises to manage the hundreds of beachside beer vendors…

    Wayan Swarsa, chairman of the customary village council (MADP) is planning to establish an enterprise for Kuta, Legian, Tuban, Kerobokan and Kedonganan.

    Kuta Square Bali Kuta Square

    No disrespect to Pak Wayan, but what benefits accrue from local councils running a business already running perfectly well in the hands of free enterprise?  The more state bureaucracies get involved – and I’m not singling out Bali here; it’s a nationwide problem – then the greater the risk of corruption.

    Of course by making these arrangements for Bali, the Government is displaying a clear disregard for all those other areas in the archipelago which aspire to attract tourists.

    borobudur-main-entrance Borobudur, Jogja

    Jogjakarta, with its magnificent architectural heritage, Lombok, Flores, not to mention Jakarta itself, are eager to bring tourists and their money to boost local economies.

    President Jokowi was Jakarta’s Governor, for pity’s sake, and knows this to be true.

    Meanwhile, back at the party, one Canadian demurred from the chorus of condemnation, reminding us that Ontario too has archaic, backward regulation of alcohol.


    Very true!

    But it is nothing like the nightmare vision the Indonesian Government offers us, not just the kind of priggish restrictions residents of Stratford, Kitchener and Mississauga must deal with, but a ban on the very act of pouring a beer down your throat on a tropical Sunday arvo.

    Toronto the Good? A Fading Memory, As Freaks Stalk Rest-Rooms… 

    Toronto the Good?
    A fading memory…but it was real. People were normal, behaved decently. They’d have scorned public displays of degeneracy, so degenerates remained skulking in their closets.
    In the days when decency reigned in Ontario,  I suppose men would occasionally enter a ladies’ toilet.
    Anybody who spotted such a transgression would realise that the man must be
    A blind
    B blind-drunk
    C   A filthy freak!
    But the times they are a-changing!-
    Humber College, Toronto, is now adorned with signs of decadence.  


    The wretches belong behind bars, in a mental hospital, or in prison!
    And I mean those responsible for the signs, as much as the trespassers.
